Northern Cheyenne Tribe pressed to hold school board election

BUSBY, Mont –– At the first Tribal Council meeting in May, elected and non-paid Busby District Chairman, Dana Eaglefeathers, will once again request that Tribal Council authorize and schedule a school board election of community members for the Northern Cheyenne Tribal Schools (NCTS), Busby. That would replace a long standing appointed Ad Hoc School Board, comprised primarily of Tribal Council members.

“This is about the 10th time that I have approached the Council with this request from the Busby District, a priority concern to our community,” he said. Eaglefeathers also noted that while NCTS is located in Busby, one of the primary employers in that poverty-stricken community, the issue of a reservation-wide school board should be of concern to the entire reservation community as NCTS is a tribal school, serving students from across the reservation and even students from Crow Agency.
